Espion Scores Hat-trick in 2014 Tech Excellence Awards Shortlist

Specialist in securing corporate information Espion, has been shortlisted for a whopping three categories: “Best Place to Work in IT”; “Best Use of Technology in Training” and “Specialist Distributor of the Year” in the Tech Excellence Awards which will be announced in May.

Making the shortlist for “Best Place to Work in IT” further endorses the firm’s successful approach to fostering and nurturing staff performance having achieved the people management standard “Excellence through People” in 2012.  Espion currently has 12 new roles and believes this shortlist will add to its reputation as a great place to work with attractive career prospects for jobseekers.

Espion, which scooped the title ICT “Company of the Year” in last year’s ceremony, will also be hoping its highly innovative social engineering and anti-phishing technology expert Wombat Security Technologies, takes home the “Best Use of Technology in Training” award on the night.

The firm is also thrilled its Technology Distribution division is among some heavyweight contenders vying for the title “Specialist Distribution of the Year”.

Commenting on the triple triumph, Espion managing director, Colmán Morrissey, says:  “2013 was another bumper year for Espion with 40 per cent growth for the second consecutive year.  In addition to opening a London office and continuing to bring innovative brands such as A10 Networks to the Irish market, our R&D division was awarded €1.3 million in EU R&D funding to innovate in security research.

While it would be a great achievement to take home any of these awards, it is a boost to be shortlisted by our peers reflecting the huge efforts made by Espion employees.”

Now in its fourteenth year, Ireland’s Tech Excellence Awards are the most prestigious badges of honour in the ICT sector.  The awards will be announced on 15 May 2014, at a gala ceremony in Dublin.
